Bishop resigns Curb appeal from school board postion By Kathy Reed Staff Reporter
The Coupeville School Board will be looking to fill a vacancy in January. At Monday’s board meeting at Coupeville Elementary School, board president Kathleen Anderson read a letter from at-large board member Carol Carol Bishop Bishop, who submitted her resignation effective Dec. 15. “As I look forward to retirement and travel, I believe the time has come for me to step down,” Bishop said in the letter. Bishop, a registered nurse at Whidbey General Hospital, has served on the board since 2002, and was re-elected to the position twice, in 2007 and 2011. Her four-year term ends in 2015, but with her resignation, the See RESIGNATION, page 11
Thrailkill named parade grand marshal By Kathy Reed Staff Reporter
For the first time ever, Coupeville’s annual Christmas parade will have a grand marshal when it rolls down Main Street at 4 p.m. Saturday. While some argue Carol Thrailkill the annual event just seems to magically come together each year, most understand it takes more than holiday magic to pull it off. Because of that, the Coupeville Chamber of Commerce – which is in charge of the Christmas parade now – has chosen longtime parade organizer Carol Thrailkill as the event’s first grand marshal. “I thought it was really important to put her as the grand marshal,” said Lynda EcSee PARADE, page 11

Town approves curbside recycling By Justin Burnett Staff Reporter
Mandatory curbside recycling was ushered into Coupeville Tuesday to the tune of “yeahs” and clapping from town council members. After years of working on the proposal with the town’s hauler, Island Disposal, the council voted unanimously to approve a new contract with the firm that includes curbside pickup. “I’m so excited about this,” Councilwoman Molly Hughes said. “I’m so happy we got this done,” echoed Councilman Bob Clay, who also serves as mayor pro-tem. Beginning in 2013, the new contract will make curbside recycling mandatory for all Coupeville residents who live inside town limits, just as trash pick up with the hauler is currently required. To implement the new service, customers will see a monthly increase on their bills of $7.10. Customers are billed once every two months, however, so the increase will show up as $14.20. Also, as a new contract, the cost of regular garbage service will also increase across the board, regardless of the frequency of pick up. Kent Kovalenko, a district man-
ager for Waste Connections, parent company of Island Disposal, was at the meeting and estimated the increase at about 2.1 percent. The frequency of trash pick up will still be selected by customers, but curbside recycling will be every other week. Customers will be provided a bin – standard size is 96-gallons – for their recycables. A variety of plastics, paper products, aluminum and tin cans can be tossed in together. Glass is excluded. Because sorting is not required, recycling companies have found glass inevitably breaks in the bins and the shards contaminate other products and damage expensive equipment. That shortcoming has been one of the major obstacles facing curbside programs pitched in recent years. It helped derail a nearly identical program proposed for Island County in 2012, a program being considered again. Langley is included in that plan and al-
though the city council voted just this month to endorse the proposal, it was not a unanimous decision due to the glass issue. No one from the public was at Coupeville’s meeting on Tuesday, but it is a source of concern for some residents. Sally Fox, who self-hauls her recyclables, said she likes the idea of a curbside program but has reservations about a service that doesn’t accept an item as common and heavy as glass. She said she worried that she’d end up still making trips to the recycle center, despite the new program. “If you are going to come, you might as well bring everything else,” she said. The issue was discussed again Tuesday. Coupeville Mayor Nancy Conard said the plan is to mitigate the problem with a separate container in town at a yet to be determined location.

Greening of Coupeville a unique event By Elisabeth Murray Staff Reporter
“We all know Coupeville is a very unique and special place and the Greening of Coupeville events make it even more so,” said Lynda Eccles, executive director of the Coupeville Chamber of Commerce. As in years past, a cheerful atmosphere will greet those who venture downtown for the two-day celebration that begins with a concert on Friday, Nov. 30 and wraps up with the annual Christmas parade and holiday tree lighting the evening of Saturday, Dec. 1. The family-friendly celebration begins with a Celtic Yuletide performance by Magical Strings at the Camp Casey Conference Center. The concert is sponsored by Concerts on the Cove. In a performance similar to Riverdance, entertainment includes the Celtic harp and hammered dulcimer of Philip and Pam Boulding, plus some violin, cello, pennywhistle and percussion as well as singing and step dancing. Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 at the door. Tickets are available in Coupeville at Linds Pharmacy, Bayleaf, Local Grown, Coupeville Auto Repair and the Coupeville Chamber of Commerce. For information, visit concertsonthecove.org. Those who want to get a little exercise before indulging in holiday treats can take part in the Coupeville Chamber of Commerce’s fourth annual Jingle Trail 5K Fun Run and 2K Walk. The course takes runners and walkers through the scenic trails at Seattle Pacific University’s Camp Casey campus. The race begins at 10 a.m. Race-day registration is available starting at 8:30 a.m.
Entry forms are available at the Coupeville library, Whidbey Island Bank and the Coupeville Chamber of Commerce. Entry forms can also be requested at firstname.lastname@example.org. In between the race and Christmas parade later that afternoon, visitors can browse local shops or hit the two bazaars that take place that day. The annual Christmas Bazaar at the Coupeville United Methodist Church at 608 N. Main Street is set for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Christmas Arts and Crafts Fair is at the Coupeville Recreation Hall at 901 N.W. Alexander St. from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. At 4 p.m., crowds will line up along Main and Front streets to enjoy the Christmas pºarade. The parade, led by Frosty the Snowman (a.k.a. Mayor Nancy Conard) includes lighted floats, community groups and Santa Claus arriving on his sleigh. Following the parade at around 5 p.m., people will gather at Cook’s Corner Park at the corner of Main and Ninth streets for the holiday tree lighting. Vern and Karl Olsen will lead the crowd in singing Christmas carols. Favorable weather also brings decorated boats from the Oak Harbor Yacht Club at around 6 p.m. The colorful lighted boats will sail past Coupeville’s historic wharf. Shops will stay open an extra few hours until 7 p.m. on Saturday so that visitors can shop for holiday gifts. Restaurants also will be open for business. “Only in Coupeville do you experience this kind of magic,” Eccles said with a smile. “All that fun and entertainment in one neat Coupeville package!”

Senior strives to excel in school and soccer By Betty Freeman Staff Reporter
Coupeville High School senior Luke Pelant knows what he wants to do with his life but hasn’t yet settled on where he’ll learn the skills for his dream career. Pelant, 18, wants to be a forensic engineer. A person in that profession visits crime or accident scenes and reconstructs what happened, then provides that professional expertise in court cases. “I love mysteries, and I have a friend whose dad is a forensic engineer and so I did an online search about it and got really interested,” Pelant said. He knows this career choice will require an engineering degree plus familiarity with the law. Pelant already has applied to several colleges, including Western Washington University, Washington State University, Central Washington and Eastern Washington, along with the University of California at Santa Cruz. CHS math teacher Dan d’Almeida has been a good mentor for Pelant. “Mr. d’Almeida helped me get the basics down so I could excel in math,” Pelant said. “I also give him credit for helping me make the decision to stick with soccer. He’s given me good college advice and ideas for the future.”
Pelant is taking a collegelevel English course from Barbara Ballard, who he says is “always available to help us,” and college-prep Contemporary Issues as well as participating in Leadership class as a student member of the school’s executive board. He has a 3.75 grade point average and is a member of the National Honor Society, which requires four hours of community service each month. In October, Pelant and other honor society members had some active fun working with elementary-school kids at the Hula Hoopla fitness event. Pelant has lived with his family at Pacific Rim Institute for Environmental Stewardship near Coupeville since he was 10. He was born in Arkansas, but his father’s career in international work took them to Thailand for two years when he was 8 years old. His time in Thailand left a big impression. “It was the best experience of my life,” he said. “I played with kids from other cultures. We had all these exotic trees around us, even a banana tree in the backyard. It was just a totally different lifestyle.”

Coupeville HIgh School senior Luke Pelant hopes his soccer skills will earn him an athletic scholarship for college next year. While attending an international school, he learned to speak the Thai language, acquired a taste for spicy Thai food, and learned to play soccer and basketball with Thai
kids he described as “really good.” “I’ve been playing soccer ever since,” he said. “Now I play on the high school team and on a premier team,
Northwest United, based in Burlington.” Pelant plays “defensive sweeper” in soccer and has also contributed to the CHS football team for the past three years. His premier soccer team takes him to matches around the state. His parents, Robert and Joanne Pelant, have been very supportive of his involvement in the sport. “They try to go to every game,” Pelant said. “My parents have always been 100 percent behind my choices.” In turn, Pelant has been involved with his father’s work at Pacific Rim Institute, helping with with projects such as replanting the prairie with native species and removing old barbed-wire fencing from what previously had been a state pheasant farm. “It’s been a great place to grow up,” he said. “I had 175 acres to play in.” He also enjoys hunting, salmon fishing and hiking,
so growing up in an area of natural beauty like Coupeville has been ideal. With his dad Robert and older brother Zach, Pelant also has enjoyed deer and pheasant hunting expeditions to South Dakota. Pelant loves the smalltown atmosphere of Coupeville, and feeling like there are no strangers here. Yet he’s excited about the idea of playing university-level soccer and is hopeful about getting an athletic scholarship. “I guess I’ll be out in the big world,” he said. “I’ll miss knowing everyone when I head off to college.” Submit a news tip!

The Whidbey Examiner • Thursday, November 29, 2012
Community spirit makes me feel at home I’m excited about the Greening of Coupeville this weekend. One of the things I think makes small communities so special is all of the things they do to bring people together. I grew up in a commuter town. Growing up, I don’t remember too many “community” events. Five years ago, fresh out of college, I moved to Yelm, Wash. Yelm is a pretty small city that still maintains that small-town feel. In fact, it wasn’t long ago Yelm was considered a town. In fact, it was me who wrote the news story when it became big enough to officially become a city. In this rural Thurston County community there are a lot of community events. I always joke they come up with any excuse to have a parade. One of the events that I found really special was Yelm’s Christmas in the Park. On the first Saturday in December, a crowd gathers on Yelm Avenue for the morning Christmas parade. If you’re not in the parade, you’re standing on the side waiving at people you know. The parade ends in Yelm City Park, where more people are waiting with treats and activities. City staff operates a booth where children can get pictures with Santa, free hot dogs and warm beverages are handed out. The local library has a booth where children can pick out a book and wrap it as a present for a loved one. A bonfire is kept going all day long and when it gets dark a local pastor leads a community blessing and the town Christmas tree is lit. It really is a special event. I’m excited to see how Coupeville does Christmas. Reading through the events listings, I can see just about everyone is involved. I have to say I’m particularly excited about all the potential Christmas shopping I can get done with the bazaars happening this weekend. And I’m curious to see what kind of local crafts and projects people like to do on Whidbey Island. And while parades aren’t my favorite thing in the entire world, the idea of a lighted parade sounds pretty awesome. Who doesn’t love Christmas lights? I look forward to being out in the community this weekend, meeting people and finding out what the town is talking about. I really believe the community is what shapes a community newspaper. In the past issues of The Whidbey Examiner that have been published since I arrived on Whidbey, I have read numerous stories about interesting and dynamic people in this community. I hope to meet some of them this weekend and meet some of those the paper hasn’t touched on – yet. As the holiday season is gearing up and all these community events are under way, I do find myself feeling a little homesick. Only a little, though. I think the fact that Coupeville has so much community spirit, it’s not going to take long before it really starts feeling like home. So if you’re out enjoying an event that’s uniquely Coupeville, keep an eye out for me. I look forward to meeting my new home. –Megan Hansen, Editor

Problem stems with hospital, not doctor This is in reference to your article “Former ER director stripped of privileges,” (Examiner, Nov. 21). Whidbey Island Public Hospital District hired Dr. Mark Borden to be the director of the emergency department. The hospital obviously felt Dr. Borden to be a highly qualified and competent doctor specializing in emergency care or the hospital would not have hired him. He served in that position for about five years, during which time he provided the highest quality of medical care. He resigned from the hospital about a year and a half ago and has since gone on to find employment elsewhere and continued on with his life.
That should have been the end of the story. Employer/employee relationship problems have existed since the beginning of employers and employees. This is simply another such relationship problem, nothing new. What is new, however, and unheard of, is the fact that the hospital has decided to punish Dr. Borden a year and a half after he was no longer in their employ. Not only that, but to publicize it in the newspaper. Their obvious intention is to destroy this man’s ability to earn a livelihood, ruin his personal reputation, and to ostracize him from his community. One has to wonder why. This transcends a business relationship and smacks of cruel personal vindictiveness. Yes, there is a serious problem here, but it has nothing to do with Dr. Borden.

Commissioners draft gun regulation rules By Justin Burnett Staff Reporter
Rural communities in Island County that want to ban shooting in their areas may have to pay thousands of dollars in administrative fees to do so. Cost recovery was one of several modifications Island County commissioners discussed this week in a followup meeting focused on a set of draft shooting rules. The proposal is to establish a petition process for residents seeking to forbid or allow the discharge of firearms in their neighborhoods. Hoping to hammer out amendments pitched by each of the commissioners, the board met Monday and discussed topics that ranged from expected administrative costs to the percentage of homeowners that would be needed for a petition to be considered. A consensus was not reached and the board agreed to continue deliberations to Wednesday. Set to occur after deadline, the meeting could not be reported on for this story. But Commissioner Helen Price Johnson said Monday she was hopeful the alterations would finished that day so they could be released to the public. “I think people are anxious to see what draft language we come up with,” she said. The meetings were follow-

ups to a contentious meeting last week in which the board reviewed the first draft of the rules. Usually sparsely attended, the staff session drew a standing-room-only crowd of hunters, representatives from local gun clubs and general gun-rights advocates. District 2 Commissioner Angie Homola, the primary sponsor of the proposed legislation, immediately addressed the crowd in the hopes of clearing up any misconceptions about the new rules and why they are being brought forward in the first place. “I’ve been seeing a lot of emails coming through our office that Commissioner Homola is trying to stop people from owning guns in Island County, and nothing could be further from the truth,” she said. “This is just an opportunity to address the needs of citizens.” Earlier this year, residents from several neighborhoods along West Beach Road asked the board to ban shooting in their area. The request was based on complaints about a neighbor, William Watanabe, who has a private firing range on his property. Island County Sheriff’s Det. Ed Wallace confirmed this week that deputies visited
the range twice during that period and found that Watanabe was adhering to existing laws. Residents, however, still worry that it’s only a matter of time before an accident occurs and someone is hurt due to the proximity to neighboring houses. The board did not approve the shooting ban at the time but residents got the OK to begin researching language for an ordinance. Over the next several months, they compiled a large binder with information ranging from a ballistics study to ordinances already in effect in other counties around the state, Homola said during Wednesday’s staff session. That research helped draft an ordinance that outlines a process in which communities that contain at least 20 parcels and 20 acres could petition the board to ban shooting in their area. The draft rules say density in such areas would have to be such that the discharge of firearms “creates a reasonable likelihood that humans, domestic animals or property will be jeopardized.” In addition, only petitions with the support of 50 percent plus one would be

forwarded to the board for review and action. The proposal stirred the ire and concern of some local residents, especially members of shooting organizations. In a letter to the commissioners, the Holmes Harbor Rod and Gun Club’s board of directors complained that the proposed rules are too broad; that they place no burden on petitioners to establish a “reasonable likelihood” of danger; and that population density is a poor substitute for objective evidence that such a condition exists. “Use of populations density and simple majority creates a situation whereby wellestablished and safe shooting areas like the island gun clubs can be effectively shut down if enough people simply don’t approve of shooting or dis-

Ferry meeting set for Nov. 29
OBITUARY Arthur Albertson Allen
Arthur Albertson Allen, 84, of Coupeville, passed away on Nov. 13, 2012 at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett. Beloved husband, brother, father, grandfather, great grandfather, cousin, uncle and world traveler left peacefully from his journey on this earth. Darla, his soul mate and wife was by his side to gently bid him adieu. Art was born on August 11, 1928, in Tacoma to Martha Lloyd Albertson and Harold A. Allen, Sr. He grew up in Tacoma attending Lowell Elementary School and Clover Park High School before leaving in 1945 to attend The Taft School in Watertown, Conn. During his time at Taft he would often find his way off campus to head to Harlem to listen to all the great jazz and blues musicians of that era. At age 16, Art matriculated at Stanford with honors. In 1949 he received his Bachelors Degree in political science. He was a member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity, as was his father before him. At age 25, he was drafted into the U.S. Army and was fortunate to be stationed at Fort Ord, Calif. from 1953-1955. Art’s professional insurance (Property Casualty) education began in 1949 in San Francisco. In 1950 he became an insurance agent for the Harold Allen Company in Tacoma. From 1952 through 1987 he held many positions with United Pacific/Reliance Insurance Company in Tacoma. His position at retirement was Senior Vice President of Marketing and Agency Field Operations. In 1976 Art married Darla, his wife, partner and companion for the ensuing decades. Theirs was a blended family. Art’s five children: Alby, Marion, Henry, Mara and George joined Darla’s daughters, Theresa and Tina. Dart, as they were affectionately know, soon took to escaping the grays of winter to relax in Maui each year. In 2002 they hosted a family reunion at the Kulakane, the condo complex they so enjoyed, bringing all their Allen family love

Arthur Allen to the land of Aloha, Art and Darla traveled through North America, Europe and Asia, sparking, kindling and rekindling relationships with friends all over the globe. One such relationship with Sonny and Macky Wong found them opening a Congee and Noodle shop on Hong Kong Island and they later became partners in the China Gate Restaurant in Seattle’s International District. After retirement Art and Darla built a home on the shores of Whideby Island with a grand view of all the ship traffic on Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains and Port Townsend. Many a special time was enjoyed throughout the years on Whidbey with family and friends. The holidays are upon us and our loss of Art will cause a great deal of wistful gazing at holiday tables and decorations. We know however that, as always, Art is charting a course we are all blessed to follow. Art is survived by his wife, his sister Martha Lloyd (Ron); his children Alby, Marion (Marty), Henry (Ruth), Mara (John), George (Juli), Theresa and Tina; his grandchildren Stephanie, Martina, Hayden, Gaven, Lily and Tina; his great grandchildren Jaiden and Skylar; his sister-in-law Dianne (Mike); his cousins Janet (Paul) and Alice (Jay) and many cherished nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his brother, Harold A Allen, Jr. on October 6, 2012 and grandson, Travis Britt on Marcy 27, 2007. Honoring his wishes there will be no formal ceremony. Contributions in Art’s memory may be made to the Island County Historical Society, PO Box 305, Coupevill, Wa 98239.
ity Lutheran Church, 18341 Hwy. 525, Freeland. On the Coupeville-Port Townsend route, Washington State Ferries has proposed reducing the number of weeks of two-vessel service by a total of eight weeks – four in the spring and four in the fall. On the Clinton-Mukilteo route, one late-night round
proposed service reductions on some routes and new ferry construction. He also will talk about plans for a new ferry terminal at Mukilteo and recent staffing-related delays and trip cancellations that have affect both Whidbey routes. Comment forms are available e at wsdot.wa.gov/ferries.
Construction alters traffic at PT terminal Motorists now have a tighter fit when they depart the ferry at Port Townsend. Passengers and drivers will depart and board the terminal using the narrower, one-traffic lane wide second slip at the Port Townsend terminal. The main, two-lane slip will be closed for about four months so the ramp that leads from the ferry to the trestle is replaced.
“The span is at the end of its life,” said John Callahan, project engineer for Washington State Ferries. Built in 1982, the original span is operated by cables and counterweights. The new hydraulic span will be a safer system and require less people to operate it, Callahan said. He said staff decided to wait until the reduction to one-boat service before start-
ing the $5.6 million construction project because it wouldn’t affect the busy summer season. Washington State Ferries officials are advising drivers and pedestrians to use caution and watch for construction equipment while on the ferry dock. Vehicles will be off-loaded from the ferry from the one-lane slip located farthest from the ferry terminal. Normal conditions will
resume at the traffic light, according to information provided by Washington State Ferries. Callahan said no sailings will be canceled because of the construction project. Larger commercial trucks might have a tight fight getting onto the boat, but ferry officials say they have been in contact with regular commercial users so they know what to expect.
Guns: County looks at firearm rules; from page 5 tioning why the draft had been legally reviewed before she’d seen a copy to concerns that the rules exceed the board’s authority. “I’m very, very concerned about this,” she said. Homola noted that many other counties have shooting rules in place now and they are even more restrictive than what’s being proposed. Commissioner Helen Price Johnson also addressed concerns with the draft, saying exemptions addressing both shooting clubs and hunting are needed before she
will give her support. She did make clear, however, that population growth over the years is evident and warrants the consideration of new safety regulations. “We all know there are places we used to be able to hunt 20 or 40 years ago and that there are now TV screens you can see through the trees,” Price Johnson said. She was also adamant that petitions should require at least 60 percent majority of affected homeowners – not the 50 percent proposed. Emerson said she also
believed that the petition process would incur administrative costs for the county and that an appropriate fee schedule should be adopted with the rules. “Has any of that been considered?” Emerson asked. In response, Homola said, “I guess I would ask what is the cost of a life?” The remark earned widespread grumbling from the crowd. Frustrations mounted throughout the meeting with one man leaving the room after an outburst directed at Homola. At one point, Island
County Sheriff Mark Brown had to ask for order. Homola told the crowd that she doesn’t get to choose the issues that are brought to her by constituents and that in this case, she’s not sure how to make everyone happy. She said this is a response to a community request and an attempt to balance people’s rights. “Everybody’s rights,” Homola reminded the crowd. “The rights of those who own guns and the rights of those who want to feel safe in their homes.”

CHS grads continue athletic careers in college By Jim Waller Staff Reporter
Red Box Photos
Coupeville High School graduate Tyler King (657) competes for the University of Washington cross courntry team at the Sundodger Invitational early this fall.
Several Coupeville High School graduates continued their athletic efforts on the collegiate stage this fall. Kyle King, a transfer from Eastern Washington University, wrapped up his college cross-country career at the University of Oklahoma where he placed 36th in the Big 12 championship meet Oct. 27. His top finish was 15th at the Virginia Invitational Sept. 22. The Sooners placed eighth in the NCAA championship meet Nov. 17, their third consecutive top-10 finish. King’s brother, Tyler, a red-shirt freshman at the University of Washington, also competed in collegiate cross country this fall and the two faced each other at the 44-team Wisconsin Invitational where Kyle finished 114th, 17 seconds faster than Tyler in 179th. Tyler placed 22nd, and second among UW runners, in the Pac-12 championships Oct. 27 and 40th in the Division I Western Regional Nov 9. His highest finish of the year was seventh in the Sundodger Invitational Sept. 17. Megan Thierstein, a junior from Coupeville, started for the Oak Hills Christian College (Bemidji, Minn.) volleyball team this fall.

Megan Thierstein leaps to the attack for Oak Hills Christian College. “Megan has been a huge asset to not only our volleyball team but also to our campus as a whole,” athletic Director Dan Hovestol said. “We would take a team full of Megan Thiersteins.” Evan Ameluxen-Coleman was a reserve goalkeeper for Pacific Lutheran University (Tacoma) as the Lutes (10-7-2, 9-4-1) finished tied for second with 28 points in the North-
west Conference. Three football players – Dalton Engle, Mitch Pelroy and Tim Walstad – red-shirted at the University of Montana Western (Dillon). Engle plays linebacker, Pelroy defensive back and Walstad defensive line. The NAIA Bulldogs finished the year 4-6 and fifth in the eight-team Frontier Conference.

Parade: Thrailkill named parade grand marshal; from page 1 every year, some might miss a year or two and then be back. “I always told people if you get here in time you go. If you don’t, you miss out,” she said. “We have a lot of old faithfuls, but every year we would pick up new ones.” Friends say it wasn’t that simple; if not for Thrailkill, there wouldn’t be a parade. “The parade is Carol,” said longtime friend Kaye Stuurmans, who has been a parade helper every year it’s been held. “Carol did everything from day one and she has done that every year,” Stuurmans said. “She is very detailed and very organized.
She wanted to make it the nicest parade she could make it.” “It’s such a delight to be able to take it over,” Eccles said. “She has kept such wonderful records. She made it so amazingly easy.” According to Thrailkill, who began working on the parade in 1999, the parade has not only grown in terms of participation but in terms of spectators as well. Whether it’s the holiday spirit, seasonal lights or the carols, all the ingredients weave together to produce an event that is the official start of the holiday season for many. “It’s always so fun to see
the lights and hear the music,” Thrailkill said. “And everybody seems to enjoy it so much.” “We love it because it’s Coupeville,” Stuurmans said. “It’s a small town but that doesn’t mean we have to think small. I think it’s the community feeling. People wanting to help and be there for each other.” Like anyone who has labored over an event for many years, Thrailkill hopes the parade will continue to grow. She said she never had time to do very much in the way of promotion but knows the chamber has been advertising it.
“I’ll be anxious to see this year what a difference that makes,” she said. Whether the addition of a grand marshal for the Greening parade is a onetime thing or a permanent fixture, Eccles said everyone will just have to stay tuned. “You’ll have to wait ’til next year to find out,” she said. “It’s a great way of acknowledging people in the community. We have a lot of unsung heroes who do a lot behind the scenes.” For her part, Thrailkill seems genuinely puzzled by her selection as this year’s grand marshal. “I still don’t know what that’s all about,” she said.

ing great,” Perez said. “Our revenues were higher than our expenses because we’ve been pretty conservative in our expenditures.” One of the reasons cited for the drop in spending is a decrease in enrollment, which is down again for the 20122013 school year. However, Perez said careful planning and conservative spending has enabled the district to come through a tough economic time in fairly good shape. On a positive note, while overall enrollment is down, the district has the largest kindergarten class it’s had since 2005. Student board member KT Wynn updated board members on the school’s
canned food drive, which was extended through Friday, Nov. 30. All donations

At that time, the person appointed to the seat may or may not choose to run for the post.

“There are so many people that do so much. That’s why I’m surprised.” “She’s just a great lady,” Eccles said. “We’re going to make her feel special, give her the accolades she deserves.” Since Thrailkill has stepped back from the responsibility of planning the parade and has closed her shop, she said she’s looking forward to taking things a little easier, although she is planning on finding new things with which to occupy her time. But she’ll always make time for the Greening of Coupeville. “I’ll be there,” she said. “I love a parade.”
